How would one go about having a comment and rating system like that of youtube where users can rate and comment on other users' stuff?

you need a system with a database backend and a scripting language to connect to it

PHP is a popular choice and its cheap to host

Interested?

yes and no

yes you will have to be able to understand the stuff

and no its not complicated at all

when i look at the russian language i dont see letters i see dingbats (no disrespect intended). It looks complicated to someone who doesnt know anything about it.

Once its explained correctly you will understand it.

You need to understand HTML so if your ok with that start here...

you have a bit to learn before you start looking at hosts

the tutorials will allow you to setup PHP with a Server for testing purposes

when you have an application ready to go live we will discuss hosting. Dont want you to OD on information
